Joshua Kelley was the only other running back to receive a carry in Austin Ekeler's absence but it was short-lived as Ekeler not only returned but scored a touchdown and ended up with a decent 70 yards from scrimmage. Unless he misses the week of practices, Ekeler has to be started everywhere in Week 16.
LAC RB Joshua Kelley - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Los Angeles Rams
Joshua Kelley continues to see just enough work in the Chargers' offense to keep him interesting, but not enough to truly excite fantasy managers. Week 16 was a case in point. Kelley saw nine carries for 33 yards and caught his only target for nine yards.
The Rams rank 22nd in aFPA to running backs, but Austin Ekeler isn't ceding enough work to make Kelley worth a speculative start, even in deep leagues. Let him end the season the way he has spent most of it, either on your bench or your waiver wire.
